New details released in Lexington murders


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Lexington police detectives are still working to piece together the details behind the a fatal shooting that happened early Saturday morning.

Police say Jonathan Price and his wife, Meagan, were approached by a man in the parking lot of the Woodhill Center who was asking them for money. At some point, that man pulled out a gun and shot both Price and his wife. Jonathan Price did not survive his injuries.

About 24 hours later, early Sunday morning, Charles Tommy Wright was shot to death on Martin Luther King Boulevard.
A silver car was seen leaving that area.

"This is our ninth homicide of the year. And this is actually exactly where we were this same time last year in terms of homicide. So in that regard, it's not any more than what we normally have, but you never like to hear a situation where somebody has lost their life," said Sherelle Roberts, spokesperson for Lexington Police.

Even though the suspect description is similar in both fatal shooting cases, Lexington Police emphasized that they don't believe the two incidents are connected.

Family of Charles Wright say a candlelight vigil will be held Monday night in Duncan Park to remember him.
